Subject Backing up (gbak) slows other operations
Author terriertech
Hi all, I have sites that are working with a datafile 24 hours/day.
Backups are run using gbak via a windows scheduled task at 4 am.

Users are complaining that the backup slows down their work to a
crawl. The GDB file is about 1.5 GB, the GBK file is about 1.4 GB,
and the backup takes ~10 min. The server has 1 GB of RAM.

Any hints for improving the client speed during backup? I am going to
try lowering the priority of the gbak script process, but I suspect
that everything is farmed off to the server process so this won't make
a difference.
